Fishing Worth Millions
 
Fishing, in addition to being one of the most wholesome family pastime, also brings economic benefits to communities all over Arizona. The Arizona Game and Fish Department strives to improve fisheries for the people of Arizona, and an excellent example has been the Lake Havasu Fisheries Improvement Project.

This partnership among Anglers United, Bureau of Land Management, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, California Fish and Game, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, and the Arizona Game and Fish Department has made a big splash at Lake Havasu City - a $30 million dollar per year splash.

The economic value of sport fishing to the local economy is explained in detail in the recently completed report "The Socio-Economic Impacts of the Lake Havasu Fisheries Improvement Program". Download the entire report by following the link below and be surprised at how much sport fishing does for local economies and the economy of the state of Arizona.
